pains to clarify the president's duty is to implement the law in good faith and to exercise reasonable care with the word take care in doing so. the fact is that scholars on both left and right can' concors broadly worded phase to handle with fidelity to all including indeed the constitution. as a legal and practical matter, the president's phase in of the employer mandate and other provisions as well with the job description so is the program for the childhood arrivals. i'm not going to go into that now but the congressman explained why that's true and in my written statement, we do so also. i have to say one quick word about what i know my good friend and frequent partner michael cannon is going to focus on, and that is his theory and he gets a lot of credit for picking it up and marketing it. his theory that the tax credits and subsidies must be available, that they are on the available to americans who have been living in states that have set up their own exchanges. i can't go into detail on this. in the questioning perhaps i will be able to do that, but if there is a few phrases i

to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws and they will conclude that neither are they. that is a very dangerous sort of thing where the president to do to wantonly ignore the laws, to try to impose obligation upon people that the legislature did not approve -. >> thank you, chairman. professor lazarus, made a statement about, at least i invert about this being political, i want to assure you that i left a lucrative law practice to come to congress in 2011 because i continually see the eroding of the constitution. is what protects us. so i'm not here for the pomp and circumstance, for the notoriety or to promote my career. i'm here because i'm concerned about the future of my children and the constitution to want to make that perfectly clear. number two, you may become it, and again, i invert that -- i inferred that the intent, intent wasn't an issue or was an issue in part of the affordable care act. and i don't want to get in to the details of that but i find that interesting that you made intent the issue when the speaker of the house at that time, nancy pel

to shrill for this bad law. i feel sorry for them because the mittology they are trying to create about obamacare is very different from the reality most people are experiencing. and when you say you can keep your doctor if you are willing to pay more, that's a very different statement than you can keep your doctor, period, which is what the president said. >> actually, i thought when i heard that, i couldn't think if it was arrogant or we americans were some sort of social experiment in the petri dish. they didn't understand american people for the most part having to pay more means a whole lot more to people. maybe not to people who make a lot of money but to most people. i was surprised when i heard that. >> when you get outside of the washington bubble. i was reading today some the emails and letters that have come into our office. these are incredibly real and profound impacts on people's lives. we had a couple that had sent in and said that their premium were going up by $400 a month. >> that's a lot of money. >> deductible gone up by $1,400. i feel like the federal government jus
to sign into law a five cent gasoline tax increase 31 years ago when a nickel a gallon was real money. a user fee is in fact a different category from a general tax increase. the various groups that score such votes treat user fees differently. as we are attempting to resolve budget differences, there's an opportunity to embrace more transportation resources through user fee mechanisms that will have broad national support and not inspire the same fierce philosophical debate that's plagued and paralyzed our deliberations for years. it has the added benefit of being the fastest way to put hundreds of thousands of people to work at family wage jobs to help boost our flagging economy. i strongly urge my colleagues to take a step back and look at this as a way to crack the code, to meet vast unmet needs of our constituents and stabilize a critical part of our budget. who knows? if we can find a way to thread this particular transportation funding needle, how many additional opportunities are there to solve problems going forward if we can address them? this is what it -- i think what it t

we are really starting to see the things that are wrong with this law, the problems with this law. one of them is on monday demonstrations said we are going to make those insurers hold it have to bring those 5 million people whose insurance coverage that we trashed, to help them make it through that time. what do you say? >> well, i think that they only work a bit of the margin. really what has happened is that those insurers were forced to change their plans. i do not see a lot of them being able to just do that. it is also state government involved here. so i'm not sure that giving him a little bit of extra money and the risk adjustment has really made much of a difference. gerri: we don't know if it's a little bit of money. because the federal registry is not saying how much. as taxpayers, we are on the hook for a trillion dollars on subsidies. >> you are right, it is not overly clear. and it's probably pretty marginal and this really isn't going to make it possible. gerri: you make it a good point. here is what i see her when i look at tax payers wallets. an open-ended obligat

a situation where young people are sceptical of the law. sceptical of the reforms. they think they will pay for, they think the coverage will be worse and they are increasingly sceptical of the guy who's selling it and that's what's changed. i don't know that the president can gets that credibility back. the interesting thing is the drop in his support came after the revelations about nsa metadata collection and the coverage it got. he hasn't been able to recover among this group since that time. martha: when you look back at the election numbers, when you say did you vote for obama, 55% said yes. the question would you vote for him today, only 40 per s -- onl% say yes. he sold this website that it would be flight their wheel house and they may be disenchanted with that pitch as well. bill: to the irony alert. president obama saying republicans could be responsible for people losing their insurance right before christmas. >> christmastime is no time for congress to tell more than one million of these americans they have lost their unemployment understand. what will happen if congress does n

backgrounds, the best law schools in america they went to. they all have good work records. but they have objected to them. so, you know, madam president, my friend, who i have great admiration for, the senior senator from the state of tennessee, he has a stellar record, a governor of the state, a cabinet secretary, and he's been a very fine senator. but in his heart he knows what's going on here in the senate has been wrong. and he may criticize the majority leader for working to change the rules here, but, madam president, they've been changed before, they're going to be changed again. it simply is not working and who can complain about majority vote? who can complain about that? someone talks about this filibuster as if it's something that's engraifn someplace along -- graven someplace along with the ten commandments. but it's not in the constitution, it's something we've developed in the senate for rules. it helped to get legislation passed but my friend, the republicans the last number of years have used it to defeat legislation. so these nominations should have been approved, we sho

about the effect, unexpected effect of the law on her practice. >>> a helicopter crashing into a crowded pub. coming up a live report on this deadly accident. plus the latest on the cleanup effort ahead. jon: while much of the focus on obamacare has been on the glitched website and how the law affects folks signing up for insurance there has been little attention to how doctors and other health care provide remembers affected, especially those who might operate outside of any insurance network. for that perspective i'm joined by karina wu, a physical therapist who always has been an out of network practitioner. help our viewers understand what that means. you set your prices and insurance companies tell you how much they're going to reimburse, right? >> out of network provider is a health care practitioner that does not contract with an insurance company. so we are not capped by a reimbursement rate, like an in-network provider is. jon: if you were to do that, if you were an in-network provider for lots of insurance companies how does that affect your business? >> means we rely more on v
? >> they will. the law requires -- especially small businesses to pay premiums as a large group now, instead of just for the individual enrollment in their company. so, if you have a healthy company and you're small, your premiums are pretty low today, you're going to get cooled with a larger group in the future and your premiums are going to go up. moreover, you have to buy more expansive coverage that is compliant with the new law. so, lots of small businesses signed up for 2014 are going to get notices in the coming months saying, hey, you can't get your old plan anymore. the same problem that individuals face, these problems are going to wipe all the way out through the small business community. >> i can just make a point about this? james capretta has a health care plan that he's put out, that he asked for small -- he asked for tax credit. he said we should convert employers to tax credits. estimates of that were that there would be 11 million people who would lose health care coverage, the coverage they have, and they'd be dumped on to different kinds of health care plans. so, i have
go back to 2009 when the obamacare law was passed, all the republicans in the end voted against that bill but we voted for our alternative. in fact, the alternative that we had was even enjoyed a congressional budget office score which said that our plan would actually lower the cost of premiums unlike obamacare. >> why is the president saying that? he said yesterday in his speech. he says you have no ideas. you have no alternatives. why is he saying that to you? >> i think it's more of the same that we have seen from this president and the white house. just my way or othe highway. and the public should just accept it that's really been the attitude this white house has been about and we see people hurting now. and those of us in the republican conference in the house really want to help people with their healthcare. and, unfortunately, we know that obamacare is just not ever going to get there the web site is just the beginning because, underneath it all, is a flawed law that really is not going to give people the kind of healthcare that they want at the prices that theyn a. >>
